Featured at the Page 69 Test: The Brighter House by Kim Garcia.

About the book:
White Pine Press Poetry Prize Winner

"Rainer Maria Rilke said that there are two inexhaustible sources for poetry, childhood and dreams, and Kim Garcia drinks deeply from both wells in these magical, spooky, riveting, and mysterious poems"—Edward Hirsch

"Garcia speaks in the language of delicate and mesmerizing touch without ever falling into precious sentimentality. Over and again, these poems mount to harsh and cold violences that speak to the intricacies of the soul in a gorgeous way that leaves the reader feeling bruised—as in pressed upon—but not bloody. This is a brilliant book of first-rate artistry."—Jericho Brown, Poetry Prize judge
